Is Liesman The Ultimate Cognitive 'Dissonant'?"

Tyler Durden's picture

Quickly following up on Rick Santelli's epic rant (which CNBC decided not to publish) on the 'smoking gun' reality of Bernanke's testimony this morning: that they knew that rates were being manipulated but it was for the good of the people - and asking rhetorically, we assume, "Why Do We Have Regulators? Manipulation Is Manipulation!"; Steve Liesman has been brought out to relay the party line to the citizenry - that there is no smoking gun. Furthermore, Liesman sees a 1-2bps compression in Treasury yields as signalling the market's belief that NEW QE is indeed still on and the drop in stocks is merely a lack of instant gratification. It seems to us that Santelli's perspective that Bernanke knows he is at his limit with regard to efficacy of measures seems much more realistic than Liesman's re-iteration of the Fed-Watcher's desires and his own incredible cognitive dissonance - just what happens if the Fed is not omnipotent?


Odd? It appears CNBC has pulled the embed too - direct link here.

Apple is trading at ~ $610 / share. When Apple's earnings are out, it will move the entire market. Let's face it; earnings overall were not that bad.

Then we'll be in the risk on cycle again, and this puppy will retrace 99% of it's losses, wiping out all of the bears. But, before the bears are wiped out, the market will ascend with enough volatility to keep the bears interested. Afterall, last August the market absolutely tanked.

August will be a great month for the markets, watch it happen.

This summer's QE3 rally was just signalled by Chuck Schumer's "Get to work Chairman" code announcement.   This is the secret code announcement passed down from Hatzius to Schumer that Ben was waiting for, and it was given under the eyes of the entire world during this historical, momentous Q+A session, which everybody on Wall Street was anticipating.  Balls to walls time.

With each fucking passing day....every day....going Galt looks more and more like the answer.  Let the fucking morons clean up their shit on their own.

Galt's Gulch used to be America.  

Now, it's nowhere.  Maybe a little in Switzerland, Singapore, etc.  

But basically, we're fucked.  

It's nowhere.

The best way to "Go Galt" is to borrow a library card to take out "Atlas Shrugged" from the public library... & never return the book...

I'd like to rub my hands on Liesman's tubby , tummy fat...knead it like dough and then kiss his sweaty bald head.

Why is it everytime I have the unfortunate experience of viewing that cunt Liesman, it seems like he's just given a bankster a 'happy ending?'

Based on the move up in the SP since 10:45 (+8) looks like Liesman is winning.

...just what happens if the Fed is not omnipotent?

That amounts to thought crime since the whole conceit of central planning is that it is omnipotent.

ArkansasAngie's picture

I don't think he will before the election.   

But ... since we will continue to burn a negative $100 billion a month (+/-) ... Bernanke will have to print.  If he doesn't there is no one else to buy all that paper that the CONgress critters will need.

You can bet that QE3 will be huge.  Bernanke knows he has one last shot at lifting animal spirits before the ropes get brought out.

Liesman to zombified muppet investor retail public:

"These aren't the central banking manipulators you are looking for."

BeetleBailey's picture

Steve Liesman is a douchebag - plain and simple. Bought off by the bankers, this tool forgot long ago what it is like to be a real reporter, and has become a mouthpiece for the central banking cartel of fucking thieves.

His leering demeanor, asinine defense when confronted by Santelli, and obvious bias makes him a complete fool.

Hard to imagine how this bumbling prickmyer sleeps at night. Probably dozes off on the couch, empty pail of KFC and some gummy bears strewn about his lair. Fucker......

Shizzmoney's picture

Only CNBC would employ a reporter named "Liesman" to spew Federal Reserve propaganda.

azzhatter's picture

I used to watch CNBC for news but it has become insufferable over the past 4-5 years. LIESman, that asshole Kernan, some little punk cub reporter named sorkin in the morning are unwatchable. They have a deranged mental patient named Cramer who is always talking about some "well run" company as if he has ever run a business. Such a drooling fool this guy is. The is just a gaggle of shitheads on that station. Bartiromo, whose claim to fame is blowing some Citibank dude on his private jet. "Money Honey"- an overweight slut who drools on the bankers cocks on air. The whole station is like some bad comedy show with a few hot chicks sprinkled in. Clowns, mostly journalists masquerading as experts in all things financial and political. Really sad TV but they have almost no ratings so very few people get brainwashed by their drivel.

Don't get me started.  Just thinking about that channel pisses me off.  The anchors are like a bunch of the most retarded ignorant trolls on any messageboard.

BTW, isn't everyone on that channel a jew? Just askin.

Couldn't agree more, and was tracking with your tags until "Money Honey".  Can't peg her through elimination.  Help please.
